I hereby christen the water dragon "Colgate" on account of the fact that my boyfriend says he looks like blue gel toothpaste.

Neirenn from Inverloch [link]

5 ~ 6 hours, PS CS4

Edit: I should have mentioned that this is a redesign of the character, so there's no real sense in telling me 'it doesn't look like her' or 'her hair is the wrong colour' because they are my characters and I have every right to give them overhauls them if I wish ;)

Just finished re-reading Inverloch. It was my first web comic way back when I was in middle school... wow... now I feel old! XD But it was so great getting to re-read it and seeing all the hints dropped along the way. :) Also, besides being proud about that comic, be proud in knowing you're the reason I now read 80+ web comics, you helped me find a whole new reading medium. :D

Brilliant ... Haven't seen the original character ... LOOKS GREAT!
Do you have anything sketched on iPad maybe using Sketchbook Pro? I'm looking for inspiration to persevere as I learn techniques from great artists such as yourself.

Any plans to revisit the other characters?

Ah... would be too hard to do that in text, I'm afraid. The best I can say is to find photographs of water and reflections and study them carefully, and paint duplicates.

Amaaazing texture on the dragon. :love:

Also the hand! I love the way you've used blue to make the skin realistic. Looking at my own hand now, it's sort of freaky how clearly I can see the veins, and you've captured that x)

This is so lovely! I adore it! Are you planning on redrawing the whole comic?
(If you do, I think it'd be awesome and all but you should definitely leave the original up :) )

I LOVE your pictures of Neirenn. Love the others, too, but for some reason the ones of her are my favorites. I think I'm just in love with the way you draw the water magic effects, and her casting poses. Plus she's just so darn cute, overhauled or not! <3

You can make the dragon look more like water and less like gel if you make it transparent. Otherwise awesome piece!
